WASHINGTON, D.C. — Ed Crooks joins HNTB Corporation as Senior Vice President in the firm’s strategic infrastructure advisory practice. He provides consulting services to public sector leaders seeking to deliver major infrastructure programs. Crooks is based in HNTB’s Washington, D.C., office and works with clients nationwide.

“Infrastructure needs continue to grow, but traditional funding streams have become more unstable, leading owners to explore new delivery strategies,” said Jim Ray, HNTB Corporate President. “Ed ... brings our clients an experienced voice in providing commercial and strategic advice for public owner organizations and helping them advance complex infrastructure projects under public-private partnerships and other alternative delivery models.”

Crooks is an infrastructure finance and project development professional with experience in P3 and alternative delivery strategies. He has more than 30 years of experience, including development of a range of infrastructure investment opportunities, project and corporate finance, and P3 project communication strategies. Crooks has worked in multiple market sectors, including highways, water, rail/transit, airports, and social infrastructure. He has advanced projects both as a private developer and investor, and as an advisor to governments.

Before joining HNTB, Crooks was Principal and Founder of an infrastructure advisory firm where he assisted public and private clients with infrastructure development strategy, project structuring, procurement, and implementation.

Crooks received his Master of Business Administration from the University of Chicago. He also holds a Bachelor of Arts from Indiana University and an Associate of Applied Sciences degree in civil engineering technology from Purdue University.
